ChillaxBBQ Ribeye: best 120-day dry-aged beef


ChillaxBBQ Ribeye: best 120-day dry-aged beef

9-hour reverse sear British 120-day dry-aged 3-rib Ribeye

I told you I was going to do something different today for ChillaxBBQ Stay@Home Recipes #2. Well, number 1 is that it is dinner today not lunch haha. Number 2 is that I am using the rest of that 3-rib ribeye I had in the freezer that I brought back from the UK when I had that trip there. And the third new thing I did, is I cooked it for 9 hours low and slow @ 90 degrees to reverse-sear this British 120-day dry-aged 3-rib ribeye on the bone.

It’s a monster and it is beautiful. I served it on the platter at the table and carved it thinly with my Maitre D’ slicing knife from SCANPAN. It was almost like a medium-rare Pastrami – served with a really beefy red wine gravy made from the meat juices.

This is probably one of the easiest dishes to cook. It took me 5-10 minutes to prep and then 9 hours later 5 minutes to carve. ChillaxBBQ Stay@Home Recipes really is so very simple. With time on your hands during Stay@Home give this one a crack. Here we go, in pictures.

Give the Ribeye a good stab all over with a tenderizer if you have one, or a metal skewer would do. This is going to allow the seasoning to get into the meat, and you need it as you’ll see from the photo this thing is like 1″ thick. It is a monster like something carved off Godzilla. No oil is needed. Just give this a good crust all over of cracked black pepper and sea salt.

Throw that in your SCANPAN roasting tray and pop in some rough-cut aromatic vegetables. I threw in some white onions cut into quarters with skins on, 4 garlic bulbs cut on the horizontal with skin on, cleaned carrots cut into 2″ pieces, and some bay leaves. Gove those a drizzle with some Olive oil and season with sea salt & cracked black pepper.

Looking good right? Pop that in your oven and 90 degrees for nine hours. That is it. Walk away and leave it. ChillaxBBQ Stay@Home Recipes #2 is going to be happy having its own Stay@Home in the oven. It really is that simple. Go off and do your day trip around your condo or your binge on Netflix. Just leave the bugger alone.

Nine hours later she will look like this. How amazing does that look on the outside? We had nothing else in the fridge or freezer so I fried off some hash browns and broke them up to make a potato hash. Give that a good season with sea salt & cracked black pepper. I served this on my new SCANPAN platter to the table, because I am a carving at the table. Yeah very poncy and Chef-watch the video below and get the ‘surprise’ when I made the first few carves… This really is a beast, but a beautiful beast. It is stunning. I’d be happy serving this as any party or ChillaxBBQ.

I mean… Have a look. Perfectly medium-rare even after NINE hours of cooking. Low and Slow is the way –  NO sous-vide, it is doubtful there is one big enough for this bad boy anyway haha. Seriously have a look at that. OMG!!! I just gave this a little sea salt and cracked black pepper sprinkle and served it like this. Nothing more is needed, it’s perfect as it is!!!

(In the video, I do mention that it has come out like a Salami – I meant Pastrami – my BAD, sorry!!!)

I served this with the roasted veggies from the pan. Simply pop them in a bowl and give them a season and drop a knob. two of butter on them. Add a good glug or two of red wine to the beef juices that are left in the roasting tin. Add a little dry Thyme, some beef stock, and some corn-starch liquid (add some cold water to the powder) for thickening. Get that on the hob and bring it to a boil, and then simmer until you lose the intense smell of the wine alcohol. Strain off all the bits, and serve in a pouring container of some description.

Not a bad little plating for dinner tonight for 5. Man, we need some friends over. I promise we will provide some hazard chem suits. Fancy coming? This is going to last us days…

And that, folks, was ChillaxBBQ Ribeye Stay@Home Recipes. This for me was a bit of a wow. I have never cooked anything for so long, so it was a tad like Xmas when I did that first slice to see what the meat was like inside. And wow was that an amazing Xmas present or what? It really is just so so easy and a must for Stay@Home cooking. Limited ingredients needed, the limited time needed, but with MAXIMUM results.

Quality dish. This will take pride in the table of any ChillaxBBQ where we’re doing big platters, not individual spoon serving. I love it and I am proud of it. Go on, give it a go, it’s an. amazing outcome. Super-tender and super-flavourful. Go on, I dare you to – ENJOY!!!
